Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Killerman's Run Shiraz exhibits a brick red color with crimson tints. Lifted Shiraz characters dominate the nose with rich plum, mocha and blackberry notes supported by the French and American oak. Made to showcase the unique flavors of Shiraz, the palate is fruit driven and balanced. A sweet mid palate and soft tannins have created a wine with both power and finesse.

This wine has a cellaring potential of at least 6–8 years.

About Kilikanoon:

Founded in 1997 by Kevin Mitchell, Kilikanoon is a boutique Clare Valley winery with an international reputation for producing regionally expressive, terroir-driven wines. The Kilikanoon property, featuring a circa 1860s stone cottage housing Kilikanoon tasting room, was originally settled by early English migrants who named it after an historic old mansion in Cornwall. On purchasing the property in the 1990s, Kevin Mitchell inherited 30 year old Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache and Riesling vineyards, many of which were planted by his father, Mort, in the 1960s. Fifteen years on, with the addition of partners Nathan Waks, a principal cellist with the Sydney Symphony, and Bruce Baudinet, Managing Director of Oracle Estates, Kilikanoon is rated by US and Australian critics as one of the Clare Valley's outstanding wineries, producing bracingly intense and long-lived Rieslings, along with powerful, yet balanced, Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet Sauvignon.
